Meet Chris Hadfield At the COPA/TC Booth


Just a reminder that world-famous astronaut, speaker and COPA Official Spokesman Col. Chris Hadfield will be available to greet COPA members at the General Aviation Safety Campaign booth in the International Pavilion at AirVenture 2018 Thursday from 2:30 to 4 p.m. He’ll be happy to make new acquaintances and greet old friends while talking about GA safety and the importance of initiatives like the joint program sponsored by COPA and Transport Canada. Hadfield is major promoter of aviation safety and improvement in the safety culture among GA pilots.

Hadfield will be with his brother Dave, an Air Canada Boeing 777 captain and both are lifelong COPA members along with other members of their family. Dave Hadfield is there to fly the Vintage Wings Spitfire at the show and the two brothers will also take the stage at the Theatre in the Woods at 8:30 p.m. Thursday to launch their new album. Both are accomplished musicians and there’s often homage to their love of aviation in their songs.
